Renting a vehicle is the perfect way to enjoy a little bit of luxury without having to break the bank. Delivered to a location suitable to you and picked up from a collection point that you decide, renting a car - and electric ones are the way forward - takes the headache out of travelling in your own car or by public transport.
Plug-in electric vehicles - or EVs - are not just fun and practical. They also reduce emissions - a hot topic in today’s world - and can save you money. It is also becoming more and more fashionable to hire a Tesla or other electric vehicle rather than buy one, which ticks the environmental box all over again!
Using electricity offers some fabulous advantages over the conventional internal combustion engine. They react efficiently, are super-responsive and have very good torque. They are also more digitally connected than many conventional vehicles. Did you know that EV charging stations sometimes let you manage the charging process with a smartphone app? If you hire a Tesla then check with the rental company if it provides this technology.
One of the great things about electric vehicles is that it means that buyers or renters of them are not at the mercy of fuel price rises and occasional supply disruptions.
Importantly, EVs also help to reduce emissions that, as we all know, have a devastating impact on climate change, smog and ecological damage; this in turn has an impact on public health. Hiring over buying is even better.
Whether you hire or buy, electric cars are known for being low maintenance. As they run on electric engines you don’t have to check the oil or water. Expensive engine work is a thing the past! Therefore the maintenance cost of these cars is minimal.
Electric cars undergo the same rigorous testing procedures as all other cars. In the event of an accident, for example, airbags will be activated and importantly the electricity supply cut from the battery. This can prevent you and other passengers travelling in the car from suffering serious injuries.
There’s a wide range of information out there about hybrid cars. Let’s start at the beginning: in essence a hybrid car is one that uses more than one means of propulsion, combining a normal petrol - or diesel - engine with an electric motor. Most feature a car battery pack. Perfectly suited to driving in heavy traffic, they offer sophistication and a touch of luxury. Of course, the cost of purchasing a hybrid car can be prohibitive for some, so why not hire instead?
Renting an electric car is the perfect option for both business and personal travel; indeed, more and more companies are investing in EVs for employees who need to be more mobile in their geographical area. Pools of electric cars are a great addition to any business, and with cars being used for business travel making up a huge percentage of journeys, they can really make an impact and showcase social responsibility. Similarly, hiring for personal reasons has the same impact.
